Winning Your Case How is my case decided – will I always have to appear before a Judge? Can a Judge Approve my Case “on the record” without requiring me to attend a hearing? What are some typical cases that you see? How are age and education considered by SSA? How do I Win by Meeting a “Listing?” If I don’t meet a “listing” can I still win? What if I lose – is my case over? What does a hearing decision from a Judge look like? What actually happens at a hearing? What are the “grid” rules and how can I use them to win my case?
